Ah, I hope everybody reading this is in good health! The week for me has seen me say goodbye to a Japanese friend as he returns home but we will keep in touch. On a more positive note my Japanese lessons have started again and I am learning a lot and I am on top of my anime and drama pile. I also had a great time at a relative’s house eating pizza and cake and watching the films Primer and the French film Untouchable. In terms of writing for this blog I finished off my list of Best Anime of 2013 and started a series of First Impressions for the 2014 Winter Season with Nobunaga the Fool and the super fun Nobunagun. I then posted about the Japanese Films at the Rotterdam International Film Festival 2014. Yesterday saw me post the first batch of trailers and this is the second post.
Before we get into the trailers, congratulations go out to Shuhei Morita for being nominated for the best Animated Short Film Oscar for his short Possessions
